The new Xaar 2001 GS12C printhead for ceramic tile decoration delivers a powerful combination of market-leading image quality, highest productivity and industrial reliability. Tile manufacturers can print a wider range of tile patterns and designs whilst increasing production uptime.
Ultimate image quality is achieved by jetting one colour at a resolution of up to 720 dpi with 2000 nozzles per printhead; this delivers the high ink laydown needed for bold colours and special effects. Line speeds of up to 50 m/min ensure highest productivity and maximum throughput.
The Xaar 2001 GS12C incorporates multiple technologies unique to Xaar which deliver unrivalled industrial reliability; Xaar’s TF Technology ink recirculation and XaarGuard ensure the longest maintenance-free production runs in the industry – typically once per shift or less.
An important new technology – XaarSMART – provides feedback on ink temperature and printhead status giving more control over printer performance which can be adjusted in real time. With this new feature tile manufacturers benefit from consistent print quality throughout the production run even as factory conditions change
